The German Puck, owned by Philip Dohse, was today proclaimed champion of the V Mediterranean Cup of the Dragon class organized by the Puerto Portals Regatta Club. The competition brought together 13 boats from seven countries and finally consisted of three sleeves, after the suspension of yesterday’s session due to excessive wind. The winner retained the lead obtained on the first day and completed the competition with eight points (1+2-5), followed in second place by Frank Berg’s Danish My Way, who won the first heat today but was weighed down by seventh position of the inaugural regatta of the Cup. Yeahnah, of the Swiss Jan Eckert, closed the podium with the same points as the second.

In just three days, the V Mediterranean Cup had everything: on Friday there was hardly any wind and only one test could be completed; on Saturday there was no regatta due to northerly gusts of more than 30 knots; and today, Sunday, the stable conditions associated with its thermal breeze, the Embat, with the weather vane pointing at 240 degrees and the anemometer marking 13 knots, occurred in the Bay of Palma.

The Race Committee gave a first start at 11:18 am, but was forced to abort the race less than a quarter of an hour later, when the wind shifted from 170 to 240 degrees. The circumstance occurs that the final winner, Puck, had gone out of line in this first attempt and was forced to trace the rest of the rivals.

With the wind already established on the SW axis, at 12:03 a new start was made over a 0.9-mile section. My Way crossed the finish line at 12:51 p.m., closely followed by Puck, who paved his way to victory.

Taking advantage of the ideal conditions, the next and last start of the day took place at 1:10 p.m. with hardly any changes: the section was extended to one mile and the windward mark was set at 245 degrees. With the race well advanced, the Committee introduced a course change of 10 degrees to port for a role. The Spaniard Capa, owned by Carlos Carbajal, who until then had had a very discreet performance, won the heat, followed by the Swedish Galant, owned by Jan Strombeck, and the German Goldkante, owned by Tanja Jacobsohn, who, thanks to this result, was fourth in the overall.

The Mediterranean Cup put an end to the 2021-2022 season in Puerto Portals. Last January, the V Puerto Portals Dragon Winter Series concluded, which consisted of four rounds and 19 tests. The award ceremony for both competitions took place this afternoon, at the end of the regatta.

The holding of the 5th Mediterranean Cup has confirmed the status of Puerto Portals as one of the main European bases for the Dragon class.
